win and my retort is if you look back over the years, from women's suffrage, civil rights, to more recently the alternative ener movement, have been borne from third parties garn hing enough votes away from the two major political parties so engrained in the status quo that they never impose the sweeping changes so i hope you can comment on the role of third parties not necessarily in winning elections but in changing the agenda to the point where we get the changes we end up treasuring over the next century. host: thank you for the call. dr. jill stein. guest: thank you for making that point, which is very important. in fact, what so many people call progress in this country, whether you talk about women getting the right to vote, the abbitionist slavery, the protection of workers in the workplace, the right to organize, the 40 hour work week, child labor laws, social social security, the new deal, you name it, all of these have come out of independent third parties, because as you say, the party that is are bought and paid for by large corporations which are part of the status qu

brown, diana's co-director of the advancement project, a civil rights organization that filed the lawsuit. thank you for your time. we played that state lawmaker who said if that law was in effect in pennsylvania, he felt that governor romney would win that state, done. the polling shows opposite. nevertheless there was a concern. let's talk about the split decision. the judge is blocking it for now, but what happens next? >> well, you know, this is a big victory for democracy. it paves the way for free, fair, and accessible voting. we know that there were hundreds of thousands of people who would have been impacted by this and would not have had the i.d. we're very pleased that, in fact, in november people can vote without that i.d. we will continue to fight this law because we know that in the end that it impacts elderly voters, young voters and people of color and veterans in the state of pennsylvania. >> what's interesting and the irony we've been talking about is that there was always a great debate that there was no proof of significant voter fraud, not just in pennsylva

for anybody who studies his history and what he's done for this country, both as a veteran and as a civil rights leader but that's beside the point. the point is that this tape, for the most part, is much ado about nothing. but the republican sometimes can be pretty good at making something out of nothing. so it will be interesting to see how people react. >> gloria, what do you make of it? >> i just think that if you are disposed not to like president obama and you think that jeremiah wright ought to be relitigated, which i don't, that you are going to look at this and go oh, yeah, yeah, okay, yeah, jeremiah wright. that was something that was discussed in the last campaign and for better or worse, let me disagree with eric here. i believe that people, voters, believe they know what they need to know about president obama. they may think he's done a great job of handling the economy, getting us out of the ditch. they may think that he's done a terrible job, in which case they will vote against him. but i think what a tape like this does is just sends people back into their corners and ki

presidency. imagine what it would mean for civil rights and voting rights and so much more. >> reporter: but if the president is re-elected, what effect would it have on the court? >> well, president obama could have big impact on the court is if one of the more conservative justices, like swing vote anthony kennedy or justice antonin scalia who are both in their mid-70s, if they retired, then president obama could replace a conservative or a right leaning moderate. >> reporter: here's who could make the nominee list if president obama wins a second term. california attorney general harris is getting a lot of buzz. >> the california attorney general has political experience, which is really missing on the court right now. >> reporter: another name circulating is ja kwlen wen. if she's nominated, the california-based federal appeals judge would make history as the court's first asian-american justice. but that's no guarantee. and for example if ruth bader ginsburg is the only justice to retire, the liberal side of the court would not get any bigger. just a little younger. >> and as you k

't matter whether they were republicans. >> that was ann coulter dropping by "the view" for a civil discussion about the state of the race. it's clear that with just 39 days until the election both sides are digging in. >> well, while the left and right duke it out in the field the mega donors are cranking out checks for one october offensive. yesterday george soros stepped up with a $1 million for a pro obama super pac priorities usa. according to gallup president obama has a six-point lead nationally and more importantly, he's currently beating romney in every single swing state. those are tough numbers for the romney campaign to spin, but the right has a new talking point. the polls are a conspiracy. the candidate to be fair has not gone quite that far but does doubt the polls that show he's losing. >> i don't believe it for a minute. i know something about polls -- and i know you can ask questions and get any answer you want. >> it begs the question does each side see the campaign through their own rose tinted glasses. joining the panel from "the new york times" someone who does

syria for the past 18 months and, of course, has spiralled into a civil war. >>> the supreme court opened its new term this morning at 10:00. it is a big one. important cases the court may decide include affirmative action, same-sex marriage and voting rights. yesterday six of the nine justices attended the red mass at the roman catholic cathedral of st. matthew the apostle in washington held every year just before the start of the court's new session. >>> we expect an announcement today about the mystery surrounding jimmy hoffa's remains. investigators are waiting for tests on mud and clay samples from a home in suburban detroit. they searched under a shed there on friday. you'll remember a tipster claims he saw what appeared to be a body being buried at that site the day after the former teamster's chief disappeared back in 1975. >>> the super bowl champion new york giants are off to a shy start. i'm happy about that. they lost their second game of the season to a division rival on a 54-yard field goal attempt came up short. eagles won, 19-17. atlanta falcons are perfect at 4-0.
